5 Granny Smith apples
and then slice them as thinly as you can manage, removing the cores as well.
Over low heat in a medium-sized pot, melt
3 Tablespoons vegan margarine
1 tsp. minced ginger
Sautee the ginger for a couple of minutes, making sure that it does not stick to the bottom of the pot. (Though if it does, don't sweat it.) Then add the sliced apples, cover the pot, and cook for five minutes. Then add
3 Tablespoons sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. allspice
and stir apples, ensuring that they are thoroughly coated with the spice mixture. Return lid to the pot, and cook for another 10 minutes.
As the apples cook, prepare the batter.
In a bowl, whisk together
1 1/4 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
In a separate bowl, whisk together
1/2 cup okara
1/4 cup canola oil
3/4 cup soy milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
until all ingredients are thoroughly combined. Then add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk together until just combined.
Put one cup of batter on the bottom of a lightly oiled 8x8-inch pan. Spread evenly.
Evenly distribute the apples on top of the batter.
Evenly distribute the remainder of the batter on top of the layer of apples.
If desired, sprinkle the top of the unbaked cobbler with sugar.
Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
